If you don't expect anything fancy, this motel is perfectly ok. Clean room, enough space, pretty quiet. The outside area with little flower garden spaces looks very well tended. Wifi is not very strong/reliable - it's an on and off thing. Other than that, Rainbow Motel is a decent place to spend a night in Bend.

Exterior was a bit dated; however, room was clean and surprisingly quiet with a location only a few blocks from upscale dining, the Deschutes Brewery, and other amenities. Only thing I did not care for was the incredibly firm bed -- kind of like sleeping on a piece of plywood,

Bend is a gorgeous place, love to visit, but it's always a challenge to find decent accommodation. This motel was in a convenient location, easy walk to town and close to almost everything. It's basic, but the rooms in the newer building were large, clean and well maintained. I would choose this property over the higher priced hotel chains, which... More

For $129/ night and it's clean, functional and looks pretty updated. we had 2 queen beds and the room was pretty spacious. A round table with a chair in the corner. A microwave, coffee maker, pretty big mini frig and 32 inch flat screen TV. we needed a room just for one night while driving home from Idaho. It's close... More

Next trip to Bend, I will not have to search for a motel. I will go directly to Rainbow Motel. In a town of high priced lodging, Rainbow Motel is reasonably--even bargain--priced. For that price you get a newly redecorated, clean, and comfortable room. it is as attractive as any room in an expensive hotel, and the bed is as... More

Literally the worst place I have ever been to in my life. The rooms are disgusting. Your feet turn black when you walk on the carpet because they dont clean it. There are stains on the bed sheets. Hair and dirt stuck to there showers the windows don't lock. The owners have the worst customer service I have ever seen.... More

Cheap clean and good value. Great place if you are on a budget. The rooms are dated but that adds retro character to the place. We had non smoking unit at the rear building. AC worked well on a hot summer day. Located in a handy area of the city. Would stay here again.

Clean and tidy motel. Little expensive if totally truthful for what you get. The was free wifi but it wasn't working on our visit and didn't make the breakfast. The best thing was we where in a building with outside locking door so felt more like a hotel then typical motel.

Traveling without reservations, I was forced to take a room at the Rainbow motel in Bend Oregon. The room was depressing, floors dirty, bathroom had mold around the tub. Price was really expensive. Apparently they rent rooms out to the mentally ill because there were several strange and depressed people hanging out. On the outside the facility looked okay until... More

We stayed here for one night on route to the Oregon coast and our room was clean and simple which was fine. Because of this experience we decided to book again for one night on our return trip. This time we requested a lower level room which was a big mistake on our part. The room had no water coming... More
